Great idea, and it fits right in to Apple's business-friendly strategy. Imagine a warehouse worker using a portable app that connects with DBI to the inventory database.

But it's not going to happen any time soon, at least not from me. I don't have an iPhone, and I haven't yet found an OSX86 Leopard disk that agrees with my Hackintosh. I do have Leopard, on my G4, but the iPhone SDK requires Leopard on Intel.

I'm downloading another iso for my Hackintosh - if I can find a Leopard that works with it, I'll grab the iPhone SDK and give it a go. The objective-c runtime functions that CB depends upon are low-level stuff that all of Cocoa depends upon as well, so I'm not concerned about that. I'd say that the $64k question is whether libffi supports the CPU the iPhone uses - a 650Mhz ARM, I believe.

So any of you lot have iPhones? Any chance I'll be able to write
iPhone apps in CamelBones Perl in the near future? :-)

I think we've just discovered a new corollary to Godwin's Law.
